Thermo Control Technology protects hair from heat damage by alternating between hot and cold air streams. The high-speed brushless motor has a maximum air speed of 22m/s, and is infused with 200 million negative ions to boost shine and smoothness while reducing frizz and fly-aways.
Unlike other hair dryers that house the motor in the back of the head, the Laifen Swift stores it inside the handle. This innovative distribution reduces handling weight to save your arms and shoulders from fatigue. It also makes it extremely quiet compared to most dryers, with the highest setting producing just 59dB of noise. This means you can comfortably dry your hair in the same room as someone else, without disturbing them or making them jump. This is a huge selling point for anyone sharing an Airbnb or living with a flatmate, as you can quietly style your hair while maintaining the peace of the room. The Swift also features a built-in air filter that can be easily cleaned by pulling down the magnetic protector on the bottom of the handle and wiping it clean. It also has a clever design that allows it to rotate attachments 360-degrees, and snap them on and off quickly. The standard set comes with a single smoothing nozzle, but the Special edition reviewed here adds a concentrator and diffuser for additional styling options. My only gripe with the design is the short cord length, which limits its professional potential. A longer cord would have been nice, especially as this model is meant to be used at home. laifen hair dryer
